Majority Leader Schumer Floor Remarks On Continued Work Toward A Final Agreement On The National Security Supplemental

Washington, D.C. – Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) today spoke on the Senate floor on supplemental negotiators continued work and the importance of passing the national security supplemental. Below are Senator Schumer’s remarks, which can also be viewed here:

As we continue our work to fund the government, Senate negotiators remain hard at work finalizing an agreement for a national security supplemental. As I have said repeatedly, it’s a matter of the highest national urgency that we pass the supplemental.

At stake is the security of our country, the security of our friends abroad – including Ukraine and Israel – and nothing less than the future of Western democracy. We cannot afford to let these issues go unaddressed.

Passing the supplemental is one of the hardest things the Senate has done in a very long time, but for the sake of our national security, of our friends abroad, of our fundamental values, and of the strength that this country is regarded in across the rest of the world, we must stay the course.
